Description:

Beautiful line up dihedral to the right of Fine Motor Control. Low crux with unbovious gear. Good chance you'll deck if you miss it and fall. Now sports fat glue-in anchors at the top.

5 out of 5 stars raging waters

Great climb. Plug the gear behind the flake and make the move. Good fun to the top afterwords.

4 out of 5 stars Good stuff

I'd give it 3.75 stars, but I'll round up. Tough start if you are on lead and trying to protect it. If you are not on lead, this feels more like a 10a.

4 out of 5 stars crux is low

there is a hidden sideways nut to protect, just on top of the hand flake. It requires a good lockoff to place.

Fun route with a tough start. Upper headwall was also a pretty good time.
